Collaboration between Log-hub and 3SC to realise cost savings in the supply chain based on new Indian tax regime (GST)


The digital B2B marketplace for warehousing, Log-hub AG from Switzerland, and the Indian Supply Chain specialist 3SC are now collaborating on the Indian market. Both companies are technology based and offer advanced analytics based transportation and warehousing solutions.

Log-hub and 3SC have agreed to combine their capabilities to provide seamless service offerings for those companies who want to identify and implement the savings potential of the new Indian tax regime.

Log-hub AG and 3SC Solutions Ltd provide complete supply chain management services in terms of planning and execution throughout entire India. Their transportation and warehouse network is rendered by a control tower set up of more than 200 experts and the digital marketplace for warehousing space.

Complementary to the order fulfilment both partners offer a variety of predictive and prescriptive analytical services including demand profiling and forecasting, supply chain network design, vehicle route planning, load- and packaging optimization.

All service offerings are bundled around the customer's end to end business operating system with the aim to significantly optimize former process inefficiencies and to realize cost savings.

"Due to implementation of the new GST tax system (goods and service tax), the dominance of decentralised local storage will be diminishing and regional or nationwide logistics locations will gain more importance. Nevertheless, the ongoing combination of multiple complex tax systems as well as transit times at the local borders makes it essential to have an in-depth know-how of local tax regimes while re-defining the supply chain networks," says Rabiya Gill, India manager for Log-hub.

"There is no Indian competitor that can offer the depth and breadth plus global experience and neutrality that Log-hub AG and 3SC Solutions LTD together offer to the market," states Lalit Das, founder of 3SC. In the midterm, more changes in the tax system are being expected, so flexibility and agility of new solutions will be a key factor to allow the realization of future savings. A fair number of multinational players have started changing their logistics network in India but midsized players lack behind due to a deficit of resources or inflexibility of existing supplier contracts or own investments.
